Littleton City Council will interview candidates for the open city attorney position at the end of this month.

Former City Attorney Kristin Schledorn resigned in October after two years and returned to private practice. The council selected Texas-based Waters & Co. Executive Recruitment to find a replacement.

The candidates will likely also be interviewed by city department heads and the chairs of the city’s boards and commissions, but the city hopes to avoid a scenario similar to one in the unsuccessful city manager interviews last month in which department heads spoke openly in a public meeting about receiving negative feedback about one of the candidates from his former colleagues in another city. That information was published in the Littleton Independent.

Interim City Manager Mark Relph suggested that individual council members could speak to the department heads and board chairs about the candidates and then debrief the whole council.

Relph said he hopes to have the council select finalists by March 21, with interviews to follow on March 30 and 31.

Ken Fellman, of Kissinger & Fellman, P.C., is serving part-time as acting city attorney, a role he filled for Littleton in 2013 as well.
